Today my OEM copy of Windows 7 came in the mail. I’ve been told by a techie friend of mine that because I’m going from Windows XP to 7 I'll be re-installing my system, probably from scratch… Goddess help me I hope not… but just incase, it might be a couple of weeks before I’m able to post here again…. Yea I’ve got that much stuff to re-install. So you’ll either see a stitch update from me by this weekend or not.
In the mean time…. Happy Samhain to all my Pagan friends and Happy Halloween to everyone else!!!!!
For anyone who still drops in from time to time, I finally got around and finished a WiP, Summer's End by Pam Kellogg. Believe it or not I managed it in 5 years 1 month... LOL
I already have another to take it's place. A new free SAL is being offered by Annick Abril – Mon Arbre de Vie - “My Tree of Life" or simply "Tree of Life" http://www.annickabrial.com/ Look under 'Mon Marquior' on the main page.
It's in 27 parts starting this October. It's a French site, so if you don't speak it you'll need to Google translate it. According to the information on her message board. The chart size is 411 wide x 430 high.
Because she uses her own hand dyed floss. The best I can do is go with DMC Color Variations floss (Art. 417) as the closest match.
While I'm looking for a new job, I thought working on my projects would keep me from getting depressed. And who knows I might get a few off the WiP list and onto the Finished list.
I have been stitching off and on throughout most of my life after being taught at the tender young age of 9. While stitching has come and gone in my life, the years since 1997 have brought out a renewed passion for cross stitching. It has become my life-line in many situations and I'm so glad that I can share it with all of you.
